SurfAid #MAKEAWAVE Challenge Is Back For 2022

SurfAid #MAKEAWAVE Challenge Is Back For 2022

I am proud to announce I'll be on or in the water, or doing something water-related every day this September as an Ambassador for the 2022 SurfAid x Billabong Make A Wave challenge. One of the largest surf movements across the globe that positively impacts those less fortunate.

For 30 days straight, you will find me surfing, kayaking, canoeing, swimming, doing surf-inspired workouts or something else surf related to make a wave of impact for SurfAid. My goal this year is to raise over $1000 to go towards SurfAid's Mother and Child program, which supports families in remote surf communities by providing access to basic healthcare, clean water, sanitation and food security.

Ways you can show your support:
  1. Sign up and take on the Make A Wave challenge yourself at
  2. Join my team Seas The Day at
  3. Make a tax-deductible donation towards my effort at
  4. Purchase from my online store, 50% from each sale goes towards my fundraising effort. Shop online at
  5. Tell other people about the challenge, the team, and my commitment to SurfAid's Make A Wave Challenge
By supporting SurfAid you give people in remote communities connected to us through surfing a hand up rather than a handout in the heartlands of surfing where few visitors go. SurfAid specialises in working in very isolated villages where the maternal and child mortality rates are some of the highest in the world.

With your support, we can give families the best chance of getting ahead by providing access to healthcare, clean water and sanitation and improved nutrition. Anything you can donate to support our efforts is greatly appreciated.

Together we can make a massive wave of positivity around the world.
